The policy formalizes plans that have been under discussion for more than a year. Shortly after Trump took oﬃce, pledging a hard line against illegal immigration, border arrests fell. Apprehensions, however, are again on the rise and reaching levels seen during the administration of former President Barack Obama, frustrating Trump. Under the new policy, parents caught crossing the border illegally will both be separated from their children and criminally prosecuted. “Those apprehended will be sent directly to federal court under the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service, and their children will be transferred to the custody of Health and Human Services,” the DHS oﬃcial said in an email. In remarks released Monday, Attorney General Jeﬀ Sessions said, “If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law.” 2 President Donald Trump said he would announce a decision on the future of the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday as European countries piled pressure on Washington to remain in the 2015 agreement. Trump has threatened to withdraw from the deal, which provided Iran with relief from economic sanctions in exchange for limiting its uranium enrichment capacity, unless European signatories to the accord ﬁx what he has called its shortcomings. “I will be announcing my decision on the Iran Deal tomorrow from the White House at 2:00pm,” Trump said in a Twitter post on Monday. Trump has until May 12 to decide whether to reintroduce U.S. sanctions on Iran, which would deal a heavy blow to the agreement. Under the agreement with the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China, Iran strictly limited uranium enrichment capacity to try to show that it was not trying to develop atomic bombs. In exchange, Iran received relief from economic sanctions. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani hinted on Monday that Iran could remain in the accord even if the U.S. dropped out, but said that Tehran would resist U.S. pressure to limit its inﬂuence in the Middle East.

GETTY IMAGES US EMBASSY ROAD SIGNS GO UP IN JERUSALEM SENATORS HAVE CONCERNS ON T-MOBILE/SPRINT DEAL 4 5 U.S. Embassy road signs went up in Jerusalem on Monday before next week’s opening of the mission in accordance with President Donald Trump’s recognition of the city as Israel’s capital. Trump says he is making good on U.S. legislation and presidential pledges dating back decades. Other world powers have not done so, sidestepping one of the thorniest disputes between Israel and the Palestinians, who want their own state with East Jerusalem as the capital. Workmen installed the signs, in English, Hebrew and Arabic, along roads leading to a U.S. consulate building in Jerusalem that will be remodeled as the embassy when it is formally relocated from Tel Aviv on May 14. “This is not a dream. It is reality. I am proud and moved to have hung this morning the ﬁrst new signs that were prepared for the U.S. Embassy,” Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat wrote on Twitter. Israel captured East Jerusalem from Jordanian control in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed it in a move not recognized internationally. “This [embassy] move is not only illegal but will also thwart the achievement of a just and lasting peace …” Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said in a statement. Sens. Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren and other Democratic lawmakers expressed “serious concerns” on Monday about T-Mobile US, Inc’.s plan to buy rival Sprint Corp., focusing on the planned deal’s eﬀect on lower-cost wireless plans, Klobuchar’s oﬃce said in a press statement. In a letter sent to the Justice Department’s antitrust chief, Makan Delrahim, and Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, the senators said that they worried that the deal between the No. 3 and No. 4 wireless service providers would lead to higher prices for consum- ers. “T-Mobile and Sprint have led the way in oﬀering wireless products and service options that are more appealing to lower-income consumers, including no contract plans, prepaid and no credit check plans, and unlimited text, voice, and data plans,” the lawmakers wrote. While AT&T and Verizon dominate the U.S. wireless market overall, T-Mobile is the most popular among customers who make less than $75,000 per year, and Sprint’s prepaid brand Boost counts 83 percent of its users in that income range, according to data from Kagan, S&P Global Market Intelligence data.

The reactions from the businesses listed on SoundPrint have been mostly positive as well. “We want to work with the restaurants and help them,” Scott said, adding that SoundPrint will soon provide tips on its website. Scott encourages businesses to reach out, as Italian restaurant Pepe Giallo did after finding itself labeled as a noisy establishment on SoundPrint. “It was one of those things you don’t foresee,” general manager Abel Ramirez said. So Pepe Giallo’s owners worked to find solutions with acoustic expert Anthony Antonelli of Pinta Acoustic, who installed an easy, lightweight custom-made BASF foam. The installation was done in less than a day, and staff and diners “noticed right away. It just changed the mood of the restaurant,” Ramirez said. “Before, it was impossible to talk to a customer, even when you were right next to them, and that completely changed. When the restaurant is completely full, it’s now nice and quiet.” www.metro.us Painful Varicose Veins and Swollen Legs? 162-03 Jamaica Ave, Ste 200, Jamaica NY Now Open!

KRISTIN TOUSSAINT email@example.com New York City is, obviously, a top destination for tourists — but what do those visitors have to offer the city? Tourism has been praised as an economy booster, and a new report from the Center for an Urban Future is breaking down just how tourists affect New York City. The report was funded by the Association for a Better New York and the Times Square Alliance. Over the past two decades, tourism to New York has increased 90 percent, according to the report, and in turn, that growth has spurred hundreds of thousands of jobs. Throughout the five boroughs, there are now more direct jobs in tour- MORE NYC TOURISM BY THE NUMBERS 2017 saw more tourists visit New York City than ever before, with 62.8 million people having visited here.

Though New York is becoming a burgeoning tech hub, that sector still pales in comparison to the tourism industry, according to the report, since there are about half as many tech jobs (128,600) than those in tourism. With 91 percent of the jobs in tourism-focused industries open to those with less than a bachelor’s degree, this has become an important way for New Yorkers to find “middleincome” work, the report argues. That includes working at a hotel, and there are 51,000 hotel jobs citywide. It’s not just Manhattan that’s benefitting from tourists, either. Looking at visa transactions, the report found that “We cannot take tourists for granted…” Keith Douglas out-of-towners are responsible for 14 percent of Visa purchases at restaurants in Prospect Heights and Cobble Hill.

A March report from the mayor’s office noted that 2017 saw more tourists visit New York City than ever before, with 62.8 million people having visited here. That was the eighth year in a row the number of tourists increased. New York City has never “adequately planned” for 60-plus-million tourists a year, the report said, and some infrastructure issues, like overcrowding and subway delays, can deter visitors. Plus, there are growing negative opinions about the U.S. due to political happenings, per several surveys, meaning New York City’s tourism might decline as people plan less trips to the U.S. in general. “We cannot take tourists for granted,” Keith Douglas, managing director of One World Observatory, said in a statement, “and must deliver on a great guest experience for the price that is being paid.” Tourists make up 73 percent of visitors to the Museum of Modern Art, 70 percent of visitors to the Whitney Museum of American Art and 60 percent of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s visitors. Tourists are responsible for 24 percent of all Visa transactions at New York City restaurants and drinking places. Tourists account for 18 percent of all Visa transactions at retail stores in the city. Tourists are roughly 70 percent of passengers at JFK Airport and 50 percent at LaGuardia.

NIKKI M. MASCALI firstname.lastname@example.org For more than 320 years, Trinity Church Wall Street has been both a house of worship and a tourist attraction thanks to notable permanent residents like Alexander Hamilton. But starting Monday, the nave, or main body of Trinity Church, will be closed while the landmarked building begins a two-year, $98.6 million renovation. Though the nave will be closed, New Yorkers, tourists and parishioners alike can still visit the Chapel of All Saints and Trinity’s churchyard, which will remain open during the work. With the renovations expected to end in the spring of 2020, church services will take place at St. Paul’s Chapel just up Broadway. This is not the first time Trinity Church’s sister chapel will serve as its stand-in — parishioners relocated there after the Great Fire of 1776 and again in 1839 when the current church was constructed. The last major renovation of Trinity Church took place in 1945. “Rejuvenating Trinity Church is part of our mission to provide a spiritual home for lower Manhattan — our parishioners, neighbors, workers and visitors,” said Rev. Dr. William Lupfer in a statement. “As a vibrant, diverse and growing congregation, we are excited to undertake this work so that future generations also can cherish this remarkable church.” Trinity Church Wall Street was last renovated in 1945. ALL IMAGES TRINITY CHURCH WHAT TRINITY CHURCH’S RENOVATIONS WILL ENTAIL About 2.5 million people visit Trinity Church each year, its website said, and when renovation work is completed in 2020, they can expect to see portions of the church returned to architect Richard Upjohn’s original 1846 plan. The chancel will be restored to its original size, with an additional 140 seats, while the interior walls and ceilings will be painted to reﬂect the original stone design of Upjohn.

Facebook has about 87 million fake profiles based on real people’s accounts That’s nearly a 500 percent increase in just over a year, and the company is struggling to cope with the situation. MICHAEL MARTIN firstname.lastname@example.org In its quarterly filings, Facebook says there are up to 87 million fake Facebook profiles on the social network — up from 18 million in 2016 — using duplicate photos and information of real Facebook users. Facebook says “episodic spikes” in fakeaccount creation in Indonesia, Turkey and Vietnam were responsible for the increase. The Washington Post reported that Facebook has released opt-in facialrecognition technology to combat the fraudulent profiles, but it is not particularly effective: The program only scans a user’s friends and friendsof-friends network for fakes. During Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress last month, Sen. Chris Coons (D-CT) told Zuckerberg that friends had alerted him to a fake Facebook profile that duplicated Coons’s information and photos and added “a whole lot of Russian friends.” “Whoever created them had literally just copied and pasted my photo from my Senate page and a whole bunch of photos from my Facebook pages,” said Coons. “Isn’t it Facebook’s job to better protect its users? And why do you shift the burden to users to flag inappropriate content and make sure it’s taken down?” “It’s clear that this is an area ... we need to do a lot better on,” Zuckerberg replied. “Over time, we’re going to shift in- creasingly to a method where more of this content is flagged up front by AI tools that we develop.” “It’s kind of a cop-out to pretend there’s some high-tech solution needed for this.” Zach Elwood The company can’t identify the fake Facebook profiles accurately. In the meantime, Facebook is struggling. When the Post showed the company a dozen fake Facebook profiles copied from one real user, the company disabled the accounts of the real person but left the fake ones in place. Observers say it’s unclear why a $500 billion industry-dominating tech company can’t do a better job at catching fakes. Zach Elwood, a Portland, Oregon-based writer, tracks counterfeit Facebook accounts in his spare time. He records them in a spreadsheet and told the Post he can spot a fake with a few clicks. “It’s kind of a copout to pretend there’s some high-tech solution needed for this,” he said. “I’m not anybody with any special knowledge. Anybody can go on there and find these things.” METRO.US TUESDAY, MAY 8, 2018 NEWS 11 This company wants to store your healthy cells for future use Perry co-founded with Trevor Perry knows that Brad Hamilton, is headhe’ll probably develop quartered in Natick and Alzheimer’s as he gets aims to bring this option older.

The proposed cut to the CHIP program drew a rebuke from Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. President Donald Trump will request a package of $15 billion in spending cuts from Congress on Tuesday, including some $7 billion from the Children’s Health Insurance Program championed by Democrats, senior administration officials said on Monday. The proposal comes as the White House and conservative Republicans in the U.S. Congress were edging away from a threat to pick a new budget fight with Democrats after Republicans initially floated some $60 billion in cuts a few weeks ago. Senior administration officials said the initial package of proposed cuts was targeted at federal funds that President Donald Trump will ask Congress for $15 billion in spending cuts. GETTY IMAGES were sitting unspent. It would not affect a twoyear budget deal agreed in February. More “rescission” packages, including a “large” one that would address cuts Trump wants from that deal, would be forthcoming, one senior administration official said. “It appears that sabotaging our health care system to the detriment of middle-class families wasn’t enough for President Trump and Republicans; now they’re going after health care dollars that millions of children rely on, especially during outbreaks of the flu and other deadly illnesses,” Sen. Chuck Schumer said in a statement after an initial report about the CHIP proposal. The senior administration official, speaking to reporters on a conference call, said the cuts would not hurt the program.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo called for Schneiderman’s resignation within hours of the article’s publication. “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.” In the article published late on Monday, The New Yorker reported that four women Eric Schneiderman has resigned as New York attorney general. GETTY IMAGES who said they had had romantic relationships or encounters with Schneiderman said they had been subjected to nonconsensual physical violence. Reuters has not independently confirmed the accusations. “In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in roleplaying and other consensual sexual activity,” Schneiderman said in a statement issued by Stu Loeser & Co. “I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.” In his statement late on Monday, Cuomo said he would ask a New York district attorney to investigate the accusations against Schneiderman. “My personal opinion is that, given the damning pattern of facts and corroboration laid out in the article, I do not believe it is possible for Eric Schneiderman to continue to serve as attorney general, and for the good of the office, he should resign,” Cuomo said in his statement.

GETTY IMAGES The best cheesecake in New York City that you can get delivered One bite and all that work stress will simply melt away. LINNEA ZIELINSKI email@example.com Sometimes it pays to stick to something simple. After all, how much can they mess up a slice of cheese or pepperoni pizza? Despite our love for plain New York cheesecake, we’re going to go ahead and say that rule doesn’t apply with this decadent dessert — and you’ll see why when you check out our list of the best cheesecake in New York City that you can get delivered through Seamless. We teamed up with the popular food delivery service to find the very best cheesecake in New York City — mostly because we’re suckers for this silky sweet. Cupcakes and donuts get the bulk of attention in the Big Apple, but we haven’t forgotten the perfection of a plain slice of cheesecake. We asked Seamless to dive into their data to find us the best slices of this sweet that their platform had to offer. The desserts not only had to deserve high marks for taste and texture but also for surviving the transit at peak deliciousness — no small feat. So make sure you have the Seamless app on your phone and order yourself a sweet little slice of sunshine. To earn the high honor of being named the best cheesecake in New York City, the slices had to please picky diners’ palates and earn high marks for delivery experience (read: no smushed whipped cream allowed). Martha’s Country Bakery 263 Bedford Ave. 718-559-0900 Their Walnut-Brownie Cheesecake Slice isn’t one of their most popular dishes for nothing. (Their Oreo Cheesecake Slice makes the top list, too.) One top review who praised this place for being “always delicious and fresh” highly recommended the New York cheesecake, while another simply said “There is no better place for delicious dessert delivery.” But you’ll have to weigh 13 different flavor options if you’re looking to order a slice of this dessert (and seemingly endless options for other cakes, cookies and pies). Did we mention they have cheesecake bars? Runners-up for best cheesecake in New York City on Seamless But maybe you don’t live in that part of Brooklyn and you want your cheesecake without a subway commute. That’s why we asked Seamless to pull the other top locations, all of which fought valiantly for the honor of having the top velvety cheesecake slice in the city. Mia’s Bakery 139 Smith St. 347-987-3194 Oreo cheesecake might rank among their most ordered menu items, but there are 11 other sweet slices just waiting for you to hit “Add to Cart.” Fruit fans should check out the unique offerings here because some of the creamy cheesecakes get their luscious flavors from just fruit without muddling the taste with other ingredients. Zen Vegetarian Inc. 773 Flatbush Ave. 917-793-0651 Thought cheesecake was no-go because dairy and eggs are a no-no? Think again thanks to Zen Vegetarian, which offers vegan and vegetarian variations on omnivore obsessions like ribs, cheesecake and General Tso’s chicken. You’ll find four flavors of vegan cheesecake to choose from on their menu, though the pumpkin cheesecake got the most praise in the reviews. 15 METRO.US TUESDAY, MAY 8, 2018 @ metro newyork Matt Juul Metro Reporter Packed train common sense Subway rides are a drag when you have to pack into a crowded train like a sardine in a can, but some inconsiderate commuters tend to make these trips even worse.

EUGENIA LAST METRO.US TUESDAY, MAY 8, 2018 16 LIFESTYLE The Catholic mystique Get all the Young Pope vibes and imagine a woman heading up the Catholic Church at the Met’s new exhibit Heavenly Bodies. ALL PHOTOS BY EVA KIS Heavenly Bodies is an Archdiocese-approved romp through the Catholic imaginations of haute couture designers at the Met. EVA KIS email@example.com You don’t have to be religious to be overcome by the holy spirit of Heavenly Bodies, the Met’s new exhibit about the influence of Catholicism on fashion. Taking over three halls and the Anna Wintour Costume Institute at the Met’s home on Fifth Avenue and stretching up to the medieval monasteryinspired galleries of the Cloisters, Heavenly Bodies is the largest show the Met has ever mounted. “In order to see this exhibition,” says Daniel Weiss, president of the Met, “one has to embark on a veritable pilgrimage, which we think is great.” A cathedral and a catwalk couldn’t seem more different — until you realize they have everything in common, with a central aisle where the processional takes place, customarily set to music. With styles and ideas bursting at the seams of runway shows, the designers of famed houses like Alexander McQueen, Valentino and Dior find themselves in elegant grandeur inside the Met’s soaring Byzantine galleries. Blue spotlights shaped to form the high windows of a cathedral illuminate leather, lacy and low-cut gowns inspired by papal vestments — but this is no blasphemous display. The exhibit has the blessing of the New York Archdiocese. the Catholic imagination, the theme of this exhibit, are all about three things: truth, goodness and beauty. “That’s why we have great schools and universities, to teach the truth; that’s why we love and serve the poor, to do good; and that’s why we’re into things such as art, poetry, music, liturgy and, yes, even fashion, to thank God for the gift of beauty.” “Think about it for just a moment,” beckons Cardinal Timothy Dolan. “It’s because the Church and The Catholic imagination L E XI N GTON PL AS T IC S U RG E O NS And there’s plenty of beauty to be had: over 150 pieces of haute couture, each telling the stories of their creators. “Most of the designers featured in the exhibition were raised Catholic,” says curator Andrew Bolton, who spent two years assembling the show. “And while many of them no longer practice and their relationships to Catholicism vary considerably, most acknowledge a significant influence over their imaginations.” Catholics live in a world of art and storytelling, he explains, among objects imbued with pow- BREAST AUGMENTATION BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT TUMMY TUCK & LIPOSUCTION RHINOPLASTY SPECIALIZING IN BREAST AUGMENTATION | BREAST REDUCTION BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT | KELOID REMOVAL TUMMY TUCKS | MOMMY MAKEOVER LIPOSUCTION | RHINOPLASTY | FACELIFTS BOTOX® & FILLERS | & MORE!

The designers, much like pop culture icons such as Madonna, craft their own narratives imbued with their Catholic experiences. Heavenly Bodies shines brightest when it defies expectation, such as the lineup of playful and daring takes on the nun’s habit by Dolce & Gabbana, Thom Browne and newcomer Cimone. They’re paired with a row of feminine takes on the soutane (the black robe worn by priests) by the likes of Dior, John Galliano and Yves Saint Laurent that are anything but conservative. A glorious history Nothing created by these designers compares to the grandeur and pomp of traditional papal vestments. In the Met’s Costume Institute awaits an astonishing collection of over 50 cloaks, robes, shoes, gloves, tiaras and bejeweled mitre on loan from the Vatican’s own sacristy, many of them never before seen outside of Italy. “It would’ve been dazzling for people to see when people didn’t have television or movies,” says Father James Martin, chaplain of “The Colbert Report” who consulted on Heavenly Bodies. “That was the way they communicated messages about the Church — it’s really beautiful.” That all changed with the Second Vatican Council, the conference to move the church into the 2 1 s t century held in the mid1960s, when “the Church consciously decided to let go of some of those accoutrements,” he explains. “Paul VI decided not to get crowned with the triple tiara, and that has continued. And you have someone like Pope Francis who doesn’t even wear the red shoes,” which represent the blood of Catholic martyrs all the way back to Christ. “It’s good; it’s a simplification, and you’re getting closer to Jesus,” Martin says. “When you 17 see those triple tiaras, you think of the old line that ‘it’s a long way from the carpenter of Nazareth.’” As for the haute couture, Martin prefers jeans and a T-shirt when he’s not on the clock. But he appreciates the spirit in which the clothing in Heavenly Bodies was created, likening it to the work of other artists like Michelangelo: “They both have an imagination that’s inspired by the holy spirit. I thought it was beautiful and thought-provoking.” And do make the trip up to Washington Heights to complete your pilgrimage. It’s a chance to see the historical garments in the context of the architecture where they would’ve been worn. “To me,” says Bolton, “it’s the pinnacle of the exhibition.” Heavenly Bodies is on view from May 10 through Oct. 8, 2018; metmuseum.org GET READY FOR SUMMER!!

Many office workers are sore and achy and believe that discomfort is a norm from sitting at a computer, yet we believe that this is not necessarily correct. Work does not have to hurt! ASK MOUNT SINAI Workstation changes can help ease woes of the oﬃce lifestyle, like back pain from sitting too long. ISTOCK Stay Healthy You have medical questions? We have answers. Metro is teaming up with the experts at the esteemed Mt. Sinai Health System to provide answers to New Yorkers’ most pressing medical concerns. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll select one question and publish an answer every other week. Sitting at your desk seems like it might put you at low-risk for injury; how much can you possibly hurt yourself tapping on a keyboard? Way more than you might think, it turns out. Working in an office involves hours of being sedentary, staring at a screen and repetitive motion, all of which can take their toll on your body. We talked to Arlette Loeser, a certified ergonomist and director of the injury prevention, ergonomics and accommodation at the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health about how to make your work setup as healthy as possible. What are some common workplace injuries? Work-related aches, pains and injuries can occur in different areas of the body including the different areas of the spine, neck, shoulders, forearms and fingers. Some examples of musculoskeletal injuries seen at the Mount Sinai Selikoff How are these conditions treated? Depending on the severity of the condition, treatment could be as conservative as a comprehensive workstation assessment, performed by certified ergonomist such as myself. An assessment identifies risk factors created by a poorly set up workstation and, unhealthy postures and work habits. Workstation changes can be all or a part of the treatment. Occupational health pro- viders also refer patients for physical or occupational therapy include soft-tissue release and therapeutic modalities, splints, injections and sometimes surgery. Is sitting really the new smoking? This headline got the attention of many who sit for most of their day. With a host of studies looking at sedentary lifestyle, researchers were able to identify areas impacted, such as reductions in insulin sensitivity, net calorie expenditure and overall cardiovascular health. Additionally, we confirmed concerns related to musculoskeletal decline leading to pain and stiffness because, as one moves less while working, there is less motivation to move more since it competes with computer task performance.

How did Smith manage to survive? Weed. “They got me to the hospital and they wheel me into the emergency room and the whole time I’m chill.

Don’t go investing all of your health care dollars in marijuana just yet. A 2002 study from Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston found that smoking weed increases a person’s chances of having a heart attack within the first hour of smoking — more than five times that of non-smokers. The reason: Smoking weed increases the heart rate by about 40 beats per minute, according to lead study author Dr. Murray Mittleman, director of cardiovascular epidemiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. “It also causes the blood pressure to increase when the person is lying down, and then abruptly fall when the person stands up, often causing dizziness.

ABC What’s old is new again as once-retired shows are rebooted for the golden age of TV. HENRIETTA JONES firstname.lastname@example.org For five weeks running, the Season 10 “Roseanne” reboot has been a ratings winner for ABC, and its knockout success has television executives peering into the cupboard trying to figure out what old network faithful to dust off next. In the current political climate, sitcoms seem to be a form of narrative currently rumored to be in development include a revival of “Mad About You,” staring Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser, with Hunt openly discussing the revival during a recent appearance on “The Ellen Show.” “We’re talking about how to make it and not wreck it, because we’re proud of what we did,” she told DeGeneres. Wrecking — and unwrecking — seems to be a key concern for most shows returning to the small screen. “Roseanne” has chosen to simply ignore the original shambolic Season 9 finale that saw Dan die; comfort food for audiences, with the ratings success of reboots like “Will & Grace” and “Roseanne” indicating viewers are nostalgic for a time before the nastiness of reality TV dominated network schedules. With 13 episodes on order, “Murphy Brown” remains one of the most highly anticipated reboots of 2018, with star Candice Bergen and creator Diane English revisiting the series that was so topical it raised the criticism of Vice President Dan Quayle at the time, leaving a strong cultural legacy. Other fan favorites “Will & Grace” chose to make their finale storyline all a bad dream — both shows ended up poking fun at their own narrative flip-floppery. Viewers, thrilled with the return of their TV favorites, willfully ignored the gaps in plot. Other shows, like the four-episode Netflix special “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” offered fans a chance to temper the ills of a horror final season (Luke’s random daughter, anyone?) and creator Amy Sherman-Palladino a chance to air those final magic words she teased for years. However, while those four words were Fans were delighted by the return of “Gilmore Girls.” NETFLIX worth waiting for, the show unintentionally exposed just how woefully unlikeable one of its key characters really was. There’s no doubt that fan loyalty drove Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival, but it wasn’t the first show Netflix breathed new life into: In 2013, cult classic “Arrested Development” was one of the best all-cast returns; a new season is promised for later in 2018. But fans can be fickle and not all revivals find success; “Dallas,” “Dynasty” and “Lost in Space” have had lukewarm responses, and even with original cast members Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny returning, “The X-Files” hasn’t performed as well as hoped. While some reboots flounder, rumors about revivals continue to flourish: Vin Diesel is an executive producer on a potential “Miami Vice” remake, a new “Charmed” pilot has been shot in Vancouver, and there are even hopeful whispers about fan favorites like “The Office” and “The West Wing” coming back in some form. The only certainty? It’s really only a matter of when, not if, your favorite high-rating shows will be back. Say Happy DO YOU KNOW YOU CAN HIRE YOUR LOVED ONE TO TAKE CARE OF YOU?

HENRIETTA JONES email@example.com “Wild Wild Country” is the most talked about show on Netflix right now. From its masterful cinematography to its incredible archival footage, intriguing first-person interviews from those involved and meticulous pacing, the story is so bizarre you’ll be doublechecking facts on your cell after each episode to see if it’s actually real. Here’s what you need to know (spoilers ahead): Who: A quiet town is shattered by the arrival of a pro-capitalist free-sex-advocating religious group led by the enigmatic Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, who also like to dress in maroon. Everyone from the local mayor to the founder of Nike to the producer of “The Godfather” gets a word in, but the most significant player is Ma Anand Sheela, whose unapologetic, sinister charm drives the narrative. Where: The events unfold in rural Oregon, when the Rajneeshees, originally based in Pune, India, buy the rural Big Muddy Ranch and transform it into a new city called Rajneeshpuram, with its own airfield, lakes, farmland, housing and medical labs. In order to control the local government, the group took over the small town of Antelope (population: 40) changing its name to Rajneesh before setting its sights on controlling local Wasco County. When: The documentary focuses on events that took place from 1981 to 1985. During that time, tensions about religious sects ran high in Music, free love and something sinister. the wake of the 1978 Jonestown Massacre. Why it’s important: This Netflix exclusive covers the story behind the first major bioterror- ist attack in American history, one of its biggest election and immigration fraud cases, while also showing the fragility of democracy, the separation of church and state and how power corrupts. What happens: What doesn’t happen? The six episodes chart the rise and fall of Rajneeshpuram, the creation of the city, the conflict with locals, and the attempt to control Wasco County by busing in the homeless to throw an election. When that fails, some members attempt to poison the local community, begin a plot to assassinate government officials, and the FBI and DA move in. The group implodes, the Bhagwan makes a run for it, Sheela is arrested and jailed, and Rajneeshpuram collapses. Anything else?: There’s some graphic footage shown in part two some might find triggering. Bhadwan Shree Rajneesh holding court. THE MOST EYE-POPPING SCENES FROM EACH EPISODE: Part 1: “Rajneeshpuram is a big living opera. Sheela is the soprano. Bhagwan, a tenor. Rajneeshpuram, the setting. Operas are, at the end, always tragic… I would like to say ‘People of Oregon, think yourself lucky this opera came your way!’” Part 2: When the daughter of Leo Ryan, the California Senator assassinated in Jonestown, is revealed to be living in Rajneeshpuram as a follower of the Bhagwan. Part 3: The Rajneeshees put sedatives in the beer they give the homeless. Part 4: Sheela ﬂees to Germany; the Bhagwan declares her a criminal. Part 5: Plenty, but the most absurd is the blended beaver water supply story. Part 6: Rajneesh Puram is now used as a camp for Christian teens. DO YOU HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE?

V1.0 30Sep2016 METRO.US TUESDAY, MAY 8, 2018 22 SPORTS Yankees, Red Sox rivalry Previewing the monstrous three-game series between New York and Boston this week. JOE PANTORNO firstname.lastname@example.org Grab the popcorn, pull up a chair and maybe brush up on your karate because the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are at it again this week with a three-game series in the Bronx starting Tuesday night. While there is always a little extra attention set on the best rivalry in Major League Baseball, regardless of how either team is performing in the standings, the second matchup of the 2018 season between these two sides is an absolute doozy. The Red Sox (25-9) and Yankees (24-10), hold the best records in Major League Baseball, New York trailing Boston by a single game in the American League East. This is the latest point of an MLB season in which both the Yankees and Red Sox have a winning percentage over .700. The division lead- The last time the Yankees faced the Red Sox, the series was headlined by a benches-clearing brawl. Now, New York and Boston are the two-best teams in Major League Baseball. GETTY IMAGES ers have used winning streaks of nine and eight games respectively to get off to their best start in franchise history, which has spanned 118 years. A stretch in which they dropped seven of 12 games dating from Apr. 21 to May 6 did slow things down, but Alex Cora and company The Future of Foot Surgery has arrived at NY Podiatric Medicine have steadied things after sweeping a threegame series from the Texas Rangers over the weekend. They have an explosive offense which ranks second in the majors in team batting average to thank for their start. Boston’s lineup contains four players with batting averages of .333 or higher, but Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez have been the engine fueling the Red Sox. Betts is slashing .355/.434/.818 with 13 home runs and 26 RBI through 30 games while Martinez, brought on via free agency this offseason, is batting .349/.396/.619 with eight round-trippers and 27 RBI. There is some concern surrounding Betts though as he is dayto-day with a shoulder contusion after being struck in the shoulder with a ball. While the Red Sox have methodically built the league’s best record over the first 34 games this season, the Yankees NEW YORK PODIATRY MEDICINE AND SURGERY All Photos of Patie Actual Patients Cutting Edge Means Less Cutting HAMMERTOE CORRECTION MINIMALLY INVASIVE Don’t hide them… WE CAN HELP!

The Pinstripes have put together their best stretch since 1980, winning 15 of their last 16 games to eliminate any concerns surrounding a mediocre 9-9 start.

The Yankees shortstop is hitting .311 with 10 home runs and 30 RBI, all three of those numbers the best within the roster. Good news for the Yankees is that they will avoid seeing Red Sox ace Chris Sale during this series. Instead, they’ll see Drew Pomeranz (6.14 ERA) and David Price (5.11 ERA) in the first two games of the series before meeting Rick Porcello, who looks to have gained his 2016 Cy Young Awardwinning form as he’s started the season at 5-0 with a 2.14 ERA. The Yankees will have the top of their rotation ready for the Red Sox, starting with Luis Severino, who is quickly becoming one of the best arms in the American League. The 24-yearold is 5-1 with a 2.11 ERA but has had problems with Boston in the past with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 4.82. The inconsistent Masahiro Tanaka (4.39 ERA) and the seemingly ageless CC Sabathia, who has turned back the clock this year with a 2-0 start and 1.39 ERA, round out the Yankees’ starting staff in the series. Boston took two-ofthree from the Yankees during their first meeting in April, which was headlined by a benchesclearing melee sparked when Joe Kelly hit Tyler Austin during the middle game of that series. Kelly was suspended six games while Austin was sidelined for five. Just in case tensions needed to be any higher entering this May series at what will be a rowdy Yankee Stadium. 2018 STATS, MLB RANKS 192 (2nd) RUNS 46 (5th) TUE. 5/8 7:05 PM YES 197 (1st) .269 (2nd) AVG. .250 (11th) .332 (5th) PROBABLE STARTERS DREW POMERANZ 1-1, 6.14 ERA OBP .335 (2nd) HR WED. 5/9 7:05 PM YES 48 (2nd) 135 (1st) XBH 127 (2nd) 3.43 (5th) ERA 3.45 (7th) 341 (5th) K’s (P) 355 (2nd) LUIS SEVERINO 5-1, 2.11 ERA DAVID PRICE 2-4, 5.11 ERA MASAHIRO TANAKA 4-2, 4.39 ERA THU. 5/10 7:05 PM WPIX RICK PORCELLO 5-0, 2.14 ERA CC SABATHIA 2-0, 1.39 ERA Are You Still Suffering From Depression?

JOE PANTORNO firstname.lastname@example.org Don’t be so quick to write off the possibility of Lou Lamoriello’s departure from Toronto just yet. Despite initial reports that claimed the Hallof-Fame general manager would stay with the Maple Leafs as a senior adviser after fulfilling his three-year stint as the team’s GM, there is a chance that Lamoriello could be going elsewhere. On Sunday night, TSN’s Bob McKenzie reported that there is a “decided uptick” in talks of Lamoriello joining the New York Islanders. TSN’s Darren Dreger added on Monday morn- ing that there is a “very real possibility” that the 75-year-old could join New York’s front office. The Islanders are in desperate need of an overhaul when it comes to management. Team president and general manager Garth Snow has done little to build the team into a legitimate contender over the past 12 years despite nabbing a generational talent in John Tavares with the No. 1 pick of the 2009 NHL Draft. New York has made the postseason just four times and have made it out of the first round once since Snow’s arrival. Lamoriello would provide a tremendous upgrade and could be enough to get Tavares, who will be a free agent this summer, to stay in New York. He built his Hall-ofFame résumé with the New Jersey Devils, acting as the team’s general manager for 28 years be- There are talks that Lou Lamoriello could take over as Islanders general manager or president. GETTY IMAGES ginning in 1987. Prior to his hiring, the Devils had made the postseason just once in its first 13 years of existence prior to Lamoriello’s arrival. Over the following three decades, New Jersey made the playoffs 21 times and won three Stanley Cups. He helped the Maple Leafs in the same way during his brief spell as GM. After not making the playoffs for 10 seasons, Toronto was playing hockey in late April in two of Lamoriello’s three seasons at the helm. But with Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan now looking for a new GM, it looks like Lamoriello doesn’t want to relinquish that kind of position just yet. McKenzie stated on TSN’s Leafs Lunch that “everyone over there seems to think that Lou is going to go to the Islanders. We can’t report that as a fact because we haven’t done that yet, but certainly, there’s been a lot about the possibility.” Lamoriello has plenty of connections with the Islanders, which would make for an easy transition. His son, Chris, has been the assistant general manager under Snow since 2016, allowing for Lou and the current Islanders GM to form a friendship. Snow would likely be a little more willing to relinquish his GM duties if it were to go to someone well-known like Lamoriello with a sterling track record.
